Shots:

  • Celltrion has completed the development of a point-of-care antigen testing kit for COVID-19 in collaboration with BBB. The POCT kit is a portable and overly sensitive device for use in rapid POC testing, thus supporting the early detection of COVID-19+ patients in clinical settings
  • Celltrion’s POCT kit demonstrated 95% sensitivity, utilizes lab-on-a-chip technology consisting of a microfluidic electrochemical biosensor to provide results within 15-20 min., while the company anticipates receiving a CE mark in EU later this month with its expected launch in July
  • Additionally, Celltrion has entered into a distribution agreement with Humasis to distribute and commercialize a rapid Ab diagnostic test globally this month. Both the companies will cooperate in the development of an upgraded RDT kit and a rapid antigen diagnostic test, for which Celltrion will apply its COVID-19 antibody-antiviral technology to enhance detection sensitivity
